This Toilet Tuesday (8/4/15)


Alas, Toilet Tuesday is upon me. You had best brace yourselves, dear flushalos, for I have foreseen many a weeping wallet in the near future. The month of August will be relentless, with more quality releases than any of us can keep up with. Your ever-faithful music scouts have weathered the initial onslaught and presented to you what they managed to catch, because screw food and lodging; there’s metal to be had.


Gnaw Their Tongues – Abyss of Longing Throats (Crucial Blast Records) [Black/Noise/Industrial]
Listen to “From the Black Mouth of Spite”

Ahh, it does my dead, rotting heart good to see new material from Mories. Abyss of Longing Throats is Gnaw Their Tongues’ first full-length in three years, and based on the three tracks I’ve heard, it’s well set to live up to the darkly twisted expectations we all have. “Through Flesh” is a disorienting ride through a hellish soundscape, but the whole song retains an almost grand, cinematic scope due to Mories’ affinity for orchestral flavorings. While the title track, “Abyss of Longing Throats,” contains less twists and turns, it is no less unsettling at its furious, insistent pace. Layers of fuzzy guitars, mechanical groanings, and unrelenting drums are permeated with his signature background shriek, pausing only for a haunted spoken word section. “From the Black Mouth of Spite” may be the most menacing of the three; cold, unmistakably industrial drums march on, while Mories’ knack for painting unsettling auditory landscapes is on full display. Preorder here, and remember this one for your end-of-year lists. 8/7/15 (Stockhausen)


Nechochwen – Heart of Akamon (Nordvis) [Folk/Black Metal]
Listen to “Lost on the Trail of the Setting Sun”

I was unfamiliar with West Virginia’s Nechochwen before this week, and as of writing, I’ve only heard one song by the band. However, as of writing, I’ve heard that song four or five times, and I’m not stopping anytime soon. The driving elements of black metal mixed with folk tinged harmonic ideas are positively infectious, and I can’t stop pressing play again and again. Additionally, the band is dedicated to themes of Native American heritage, a topic I wish was explored further in metal. I may be hearing things, but I’m hearing an anthemic quality to this tune that’s almost power metal-esque, and man it is addictive. Power metal nerds are either going to revolt or call me on their own now, including me on discussions about leather pants and the most effective acne treatment. Either way, I’m ready to jam this Nechochwen album. 8/4/15 (Stockhausen)

mysterious priestess

Mysterious Priestess – Yumeguni no Gishi (Kickstart) [Prog Metal]
Listen to “Mangan no Yoake,” “Kusanagi no Tsurugi”

This is one of those bands that I wasn’t really sure what to make of at first. “Mangan no Yoake” has a weird major-key black metal feel (which I’m sure is going to draw a deafheaven comparison), but the synth chords on top of everything give it an almost uncomfortable layer of tension. The latter half of the song has a jazzy vibe to it, a vibe that is shared on the somewhat more straightforward “Kusanagi no Tsurugi.” I imagine this is what a happy Opeth would have played in their pre-Heritage days, but I might just be crazy. Give it a listen and decide for yourself. 8/5/15 (Spear)


Krisiun – Forged in Fury (Century Media) [Death Metal]
Listen to “Scars of Hatred”

Have you encountered any reviews of Krisiun’s latest? I have, and all of them seemed to agree that Forged In Fury was not… well, forged in fury, but rather one of Krisiun’s less brilliant releases. Hearing “Scars of The Hatred” had unfortunately led me to the same conclusion. Playing less to their melodic capabilities and strongly to the chug (plus having overall less interesting ideas on both sides) wasn’t maybe their best idea. Why am I lifting this album from all the new releases then? Krisiun is one of those bands who don’t seem to be capable of making an outright bad album so if chuggy death metal is what you seek Krisiun has you covered (again) with FIF. It’s only mediocre when compared to the standards set by the band themselves. 8/7/15 (Karhu)


Cattle Decapitation – The Anthropocene Extinction (Metal Blade) [Death Metal]

Many of you know of my beef with this band. But it seems to me that I have achieved a relative peace with them. Their older releases no longer excite me at all (whereas they used, hence the disappointment) but The Anthropocene Extinction is different. Pretty much all songs feature Travis Ryan showing his vocal-capabilities (via “Gollum”-screeches or cleans of varying degrees) and the songwriting feels more focused than on earlier efforts. Despite never lacking speed, Anthropocene Extinction never feels grnding, more like extreme speed metal. All in all an excellent release and the bands only one I enjoy as a whole. 8/7/15 (Karh Bear)


Hivelords – Tapered Limbs of a Human Star (Anthropic Records) [Blackened Sludge]
Listen to “Vessel”

Start your morning off right with some human sacrifice courtesy of Hivelords. The Filthydelphia (I’m sorry) quintet play a sinewy blend of sludge and black metal that, much like the quartered fellow on the cover of Tapered Limbs of a Human Star, manages to transcend its corporeal constituent parts. At times psychedelic, at other times disorienting, but always heavy, “Vessel” is a track that requires multiple spins to comprehend. I look forward to jamming the rest of this. FFO: The Atlas Moth, Sadgiqacea, Tombs 8/4/15 (W.)

 visceral decay

Visceral Decay – Implosion Psychosis (Gutteral Brutality) [Brutal Death]

2015 has seen some great brutal death metal. Visceral Decay bring the slams and blasts and groove that your filthy heart craves. The band is a little less cerebral than some of the other groups making this kind of ruckus, but judging from these three tracks, you’re certainly going to be slamming. FFO: Embodied Torment, Dying Fetus, Iniquitous Deeds 8/6/15 (W.)

dead to a dying world

Dead to a Dying World – Litany (Gilead Media/Tofu Carnage/Alerta Antifascista) [Black Metal]

A few weeks ago I went to see False and noticed that local band Dead to a Dying World was opening. I had heard the name but hadn’t listened to them and once they hit the stage I realized that was a grave mistake. Dead to a Dying World mixes black metal and doom like so many bands these days, but they do it with a sense of emotional weight that few other bands match. If peaks and valleys in music is your thing, it’s going to be hard to find an album that satisfies your soul quite like Litany does. 8/4/15 (‘Stachebear)

Bankeray – Liar (EB Records) [Thrash]

  • Celtic Frosty

    I almost spit my coffee all over my screen when I saw “Domestic Abusecore” next to Enabler. Well played.

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    Bandcamp is saying Nechochwen’s album is coming out September 4th.

  • Hubert

    Through all our arguments, discussions and disagreements, there is one thing that I think we can all agree on:

    Gollum vocals are best vocals.

    • Guacamole Jim
      • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

        LOVE this movie. That Gollum creeped me out as a young pup.

        • Guacamole Jim

          Oh yeah, the way his eyes had those weird, rotating colours whenever he’d get angry was horrifying.

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Always liked this froggier gollum better

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

          I love the songs in this movie.

          • KJM

            When there’s a whip
            There’s a way!

          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            It always seemed super weird to me that the LotR trilogy was condensed into two movies. Also, the rotoscoping was super weird.

          • KJM

            Bakshi’s version was originally meant to be two movies, but didn’t happen that way because of money and legalities(I think).

          • Guacamole Jim

            FIFTEEN BIRDS

            IN FIVE FIR TREES


            IN A FIERY BREEZE


          • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

            What funny little birds
            They have no wings
            Oh what should we do
            With the funny little things

  • Tyree

    New Barbatos, fuck yes! Definitely jamming that today.

  • Hubert

    You’ve outdone yourself with the genre tags this week Spear. Good job.

    • Spear

      They deserved it.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        I’ll take your word for it that Miss May I’s Deathless wasn’t as good as Revocations. I make a point to not listen to bands who call themselves ‘Miss May I’. The same rule applies with Mindless Self Indulgence and The Devil Wears Prada etc

  • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

    Definitely getting all moist and tingly over this Nechochwen stuff, and definitely feeling a bit of the power metal you were talking about. More in a Wintersun or Whispered sorta way than anything outright power metal though.
    I’ve heard some of the reviews about the new Krisiun as well, but fuck it, they’re my favorite death metal band, so I’m checking it out regardless. I really think they could expand their sound if they brought in a second guitarist, but in a way that would ruin some of the ultra-tight dynamic that they have.
    I’m afraid to even click on Enabler and find out what ‘Domestic Abuse Core’ is.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    I’d just lile to point out that Crimson Sun found their singer from karaoke. Yep, that’s how good they are.

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

      Hey, it worked for Journey and kinda worked for Judas Priest!

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        It also worked out for Chris ‘Izzy’ Cole when he took over from Bobby Beers in Steel Dragon.

  • KJM

    Ho, mendicants, miscreants, and fellow gentlemen of the road!

  • Tyree

    Deiphago got released today? I’ve had that CD for over a month now.

    • Spear

      Hell’s Headbangers seems to have a lot of discrepancies with their Bandcamp pages and their website. I don’t usually have the time to dig through their main site for stuff, so I go by what’s on Bandcamp.

      • Tyree

        Thier Bandcamp is very inconsistent. Their website though is fantastic. You can get a lot of releases months before they are even released.

    • RJA

      And their website now says October for the vinyl 🙁

  • “Full-Force Dragonfuckery”
    Call now. Must have a valid credit card. $4.29/minute


    The Satan is strong with Deiphago

    • Tyree

      Yes. That album is mean.

      • RJA

        Pitchfork actually reviewed that today. Kind of crazy.

        • Tyree

          Pitchfork has the most fucked of rating system. Short but sweet review though. I never check Pitchfork any more.

          • RJA

            I still check the reviews out regularly even though 75% of it doesn’t fit my tastes. Mostly out of habit I guess.

  • I saw Hivelords a few years ago with Sadgiqacea. Both very cool bands.

    I’ve only listened to one track off the new Krisiun album. I had no expectations of it being better than that Holyfuckingshitthisisthebestthingever/10 album “The Great Execution.” No way they’ll ever top their last one. …and I’m ok with that.

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      I’m going to listen to the full Hivelords album shortly. I was very impressed with that one track. It takes a few spins to get the full effect.

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt

        I get an Inter Arma vibe off that track when it gets all reverb-y.

        • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

          The whole thing is up on the Spotify.

    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      I’ll be seeing Hivelords at Shadow Woods. I kind of wish it was after dark and on outdoor stage instead of the indoor stage at 3pm though.

  • i know it’s not going to be popular here in the Tarlet, but i REALLY dig inAeona’s new album. there are some top-shelf hooks in there

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      I got that promo but didn’t make it all the way through. Should I stick it out?

      • IS LOUD AS FUCK.

        • you’re not wrong. but got that industrial appeal to it, fitting for the style IMHO

      • should donate to mcnulti. but all joe king aside, if it didn’t grab you from the start it won’t later on

    • I like top-shelf hooks. I’ll give it a listen.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Just finished the second track. I’m still waiting for the top-shelf hooks.

      • the second track is probably my favorite! ah well, i’m getting pretty good at guessing when something won’t go over too well around here

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          It happens to us all, eventually.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      affirmed: you suck

  • Stocky have my heart with the Nechochwen recommendation.

    Thank you, Stocky.

    • J.R.™

      The description has me all excited, and now too does your description! Gotta get home!

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

      Definitely a good song! I’d love to order it, if they had another songs to go by (and what the fuck is the SEK thing for their pricing?)

      • tertius_decimus

        Swedish Krona.

        • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

          Oh! But why would a band from West Virginia want to be paid in Swedish money?!

          • tertius_decimus


          • Stockhausen

            They’re on a European label (Nordvis), and the purchasing is done through that.
            Alternative answer: KVLT

          • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers


      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        SEK is the European euphemism for inflation.

        • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

          Even more confused now.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            Like @tertius_decimus put it, the Swedish Krona (or crown). 1€ = 20SEK or something, and stuff that costs around 20€ here costs around 5-10€ (but in SEKs) in there. So the inflation thing has become a sort of a running joke (that lost it’s point around the time I started explaining this)

    • Stockhausen

      You are welcome, friend. I’m getting this album the second I’m home.

  • Scrimm

    Weak week. Want to like the new FF but so far it’s a nope.

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      Check out Visceral Decay.

      • Scrimm

        I did. Pretty good stuff.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      The bits & pieces I’ve heard haven’t really grabbed my attention

      • Scrimm

        Sounds kinda neutered to me.

        • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

          The groovier approach is really off-putting to me.

    • DCLXVI


      • Scrimm

        I’m pretty forgiving too, but it’s not doing it for me at all.

    • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers
    • Ted Nü-Djent ™

      Fear Factory got me all juiced up again after Mechanize, only to be let back down again when The Industrialist came out. I’ve heard one song off this album and it didm’t really do anything for me either so I think it’s time I pulled the plug on Fear Factory for good.

      • …The Frenemy Strikes Back

        That pretty much sums up how I feel about FF.

        I listened to that new song and stopped about a third of the way through. It was like they were parodying their nu metal phase.

        As long as they remain the Dino and Burton’s How Long Can We Milk This For Show, I’ll just pretend that Mechanize was their last album.

      • Scrimm

        Same. I listened to Mechanize constantly for months. I haven’t done that with another album in years. I’ve heard 3 so far, half of one song was decent.

  • Maik Bozinton™

    Full-Force Dragonfuckery is just what you expect.
    Domestic Abusecore is pretty cool, some heavy shit there.
    “Revocation’s Was Better”, well, Revocation’s didn’t grab me for whatever reason, but this is like some sort of Chimaira rip off with clean vox, the song that I heard keeps reminding me of Pure Hatred.
    Obnoxiusly Long Titles Metal has an obnoxius snare sound.

    • So you’re actually admitting to liking Miss May I’s Deathless over Revocations?
      You’re entitled to your own opinion, no matter how wrong it is, I guess.

      • Maik Bozinton™

        I don’t know, I still will try Revocation’s, while Miss May I didn’t caught my interest.

  • I had no idea Istapp finally got around to releasing a new album. This is exciting!

  • Dragonfuckery you say? I shall partake.

  • Angry Ghosts In My Boogers

    Oh, and Annihilator released a new video yesterday. WTF happened to them?!? This is another video breakdown that writes itself!

  • Thanks everyone and props for the hard work:
    oilet ov Hell now have more than 1000 likes in Facebook!!!

    And, the promise is fulfilled. Here’s a mysterious man eating a banana.






      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        It’s streaming in full though. Ought to ease the pain.

        • True, but I want to savor the glory for when it is actually released. Kna mean?


          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            I kna whatchu mean. But I have not thine virtue of patience

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I tried and failed. I justified it by telling myself that my preorder will probably turn up a week late


    I will be buying this Cattle Decap on CD

    • Tyree

      I will be buying a Six pack of beer instead.

      • I think you have made it clear before that you do not enjoy them. I am not sure why you must belabor the point.

        • Tyree

          Because I’m an asshole.

        • Tapir doesn’t like them either. hold on a second… has anybody seen Tyree and Tapir in the same room at the same time?!?!

          • Maik Bozinton™

            Yes on Darkthrone.

          • Maik Bozinton™

            You can get on the room with the Tapir.
            You just have to hate something, anything.

          • Sir Tapir The Based :]

            You know too much…

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            I’m just waiting for Tapir and Smitty to drop the charade and get it on

        • I just listened to the whole thing and it’s not as bad as I thought. Still some of it reminds me of the last couple Red Chord albums yet not quite up to par for my tastes.

        • CT-12

          I was reminded of you today after being left to only listen to my cassettes since my BRAND NEW fucking MP3 player shit the bed last night (but that’s a whole ‘nother story…). Never got around to listening to this tape until today but it’s pretty killer! Anyhow, just thought I’d share the thought; otherwise, take it easy and enjoy the new Cattle Decap (waiting for mine in the mail)!

      • DCLXVI

        I approve of this ONLY if it’s a six of these baddies

        • Tyree

          I’ve had my fair share of Yuengling and Yuengling Light. I’ve been enjoying this Imperial IPA for the past week. I may get more.

          • DCLXVI

            can;t do those hoppy beers. nope.

          • Tyree

            Read my comment to my self because I am a dumbass as well..

          • Tyree

            Do you like stouts and porters?

          • DCLXVI

            No, I am a colossal Beer Poser.

          • Tyree
          • more beer

            Without the hole in her lip. There wouldn`t be that view.

          • Tyree

            Even though half of the beer went down her chest. I would still call her the winner of that chug contest.

          • more beer

            Also the jug contest!

          • Ted Nü-Djent ™

            ^what Earth Crisis were called before they went straight edge

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        I will buy both

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        This pleases me.

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      Good… Gooooood… I approve of your ticket purchase.

  • My band played a show with Hivelords last night in Burlington Vt. Their set was fucking sick, so loud. My body hurt afterwards.

    • Dubzlinger, Malandro Slayer

      The album is solid!

  • Bert Banana

    Wait…hold on. Other bands released stuff around the same time as Cattle? Do their labels not like them?

    That’s like releasing a movie the same weekend as a Marvel movie.

  • tertius_decimus

    Nechochwen reminds of the band Diadema Tristis.

  • Waynecro

    The video for “Kusanagi no Tsurugi” by Mysterious Priestess totally looks like some cool bros doing a free concert in the lighting section at a Guitar Center.

  • CT-12

    Hell yeah, a lot of cool releases coming out today! Was completely (but pleasantly) surprised to see Witchsorrow coming out with something new! Hell yee

  • john

    I’m kinda digging that Chemical Burn stuff.
